Supporting and promoting Photographers at Durham University



Throughout the year we run various workshops aimed at all levels of experience. These events range from classroom sessions and walks around Durham to a pop-up Studio environment. Our Exec are always on hand to attempt to field any questions you may have so don’t be scared to ask!


Day Trips

We run a number of day trips annually to local areas of interest to allow members to practise their skills, whilst providing a great excuse to escape Durham for the day! Previous locations include Whitby (pictured), Bamburgh, Lindisfarne & Holy Island.



Alongside our workshops, we run Tuition sessions throughout the year to share our experience and hopefully aid members when learning more about photography. Our Exec are present at all our events to help provide tuition and guidance.


Annual Tour

Every year, the Durham University Photography Society goes on a trip abroad, organised by the society’s Tour Manage, under the guise of practising photography skills in an amazing environment. Previous destinations include Iceland, Venice and Dubrovnik!
